    I wonder how far these guys were away to not hear the A-10 and how does the camera stay so focused from a moving jet? Guess that is secret.

    Guys, you don't hear this bird until its right on top of you and then its too late. I know I faced some of them in training exercises. This bird is one scary and ugly killer, I'm glad they are on my side. I was a 19D30, Armored Recon Specialist.

    Desert_Fox-1 has it right...if you hear that bad MF "growl", he's shootin' at someone else! Example; check out the vid titled "A-10 Takes out Taliban in Treeline", on the other vids on this site. 'Nuff said.

    The A-10 Warthog is a super plane to have on our side. Talk about Paint Splatter! Love it!

    NOT A-10 footage,gotta be chopper footage.

    The video footage is from FAC most likely. Dude on the hill with the nice optics lasing target or ID'ing target for pilot. That's CAS. F16 or F15, F22, F35 would be bingo fuel after 2 runs.

    AH-64...625 rpm. A-10 Warthog...4000 rpm. Watch the other chopper vids. It's a "Tank Killer".

    Why are all the videos unavailable? I have never been able to view one of them. Is it that they are being blocked by our organization?

    one has to wonder if these were real terrorist or just some folks trying to travel. How much did it cost to blow up a few people? what a fuckin waste. There's just no reasoning with them instead of fighting? I find that hard to believe. It was pretty cool to see the bomb blow up though, I wonder what the black shit is. How long until the bastards running our government use that shit on us?

    The video is either from a drone, Apache, or another aircraft. A-10's make a distinctive high-pitched whistling sound but on the first pass when most of them got ripped up, they never knew what hit them and didn't hear it until 30MM shells were exploding all around them. Hopefully anyone that crawled away was mortally wounded and died a slow painful death.

    The video was shot by a helo but the amount of rounds down range says A 10. no doubt!!!

  19. 16125744

    The ( Black shit) was soil flying from the impact of the 30MM rounds.

    Peaceful tourists out roaming around!? "Secret Black Shit!? What bomb??!! You sure can tell the civilians, REMF's, and wannabees from the true warriors!

    I didn't know A-10's could hover in one spot. I think this should be Apache footage and not A-10. Still, this is some awesome firepower and I would not want to be on the receiving end.

    Why would you assume that just because an A-10 is attacking, it is the only thing filming the attack? There are no helos, no bombs, no black goo bits. Just A-10s, lots of 30mm, and lots of hot frag. Apaches dream of having a 30mm Gatling gun like this...

  24. Slewntus
    Slewntus May 18, 2012

    Perhaps the filming is done by a drone and the shooting by the A-10, ever think of that?

    A-10s, Delivering whoop ass to your door since the 1980s. I fucking love it.

  26. 6356490

    If you can hear the gun go off, you are already dead. Those rounds travel well above the speed of sound.

    Desert_Fox-1 is dead on. You don't hear it til it's up your a-- kickin' footballs. Yeah, its too late then cuz you been had. 6356490 - you got the general situation down pat, but if you hear the gun go off, he prob'ly shot hell out of somebody else, like NFZV said. If you're his bullseye, the first you'll know of it is when the first round busts your butt, then it's time to cancel Christmas, anyway. Have many sweet mems humping 30mm rounds into the pods used to take them to the line for upload back in the late '80's (347 TFW). Retired '90 after 20+yr in AMMO. Makes me wanna open the bunker and break out s'more when a round goes off. 28546281- breathe easy, bro'. Napalm is still around. It was declared out of style in early '70's, but orders came down to give the Ammo troops a spay can and stencil. Same ingred's, but label says "Incendi-Gel" where it once said "Napalm". Not used much, tho, since we got nicer toys to play with. God Bless our troops and the USA! (Enjoyed 23 months in Iraq with today's troops before gov't pulled combatants out in Aug 2010. Would prob'ly still be there til it was over or they killed me, otherwise.) "Armadillo"

    @Erichs, the camera view obviously wasn't from the jet (Obviously not moving either). It wasas probably a patrol that called in the strike.

    I have seen this video before. The first time it was tagged as an AH-64 attack, not an A-10. Since the camera is stationary, the AH-64 makes more sense. Unless A-10s can now hover.

  33. 23208059

    Ok, I am not above correcting myself. This is a hand held IR viewer (no heading indicator).

    It was def. taken from a Aerostat. Not a blimp. Big difference in that a blimp can fly where a big white balloon that looks like a blimp just floats on a teather. Anyway. Cool video.

    Awesome ground to air / ground to ground too.in the Vulcan cannon. Got to shoot it in Germany in '77. Sweet.

    Barley could see the sky, so many aircraft entering/departing target area, refueling in both directions(DST STRM, 3rd US Armored Cavalry Regiment, "Brave Rifles"). Landing only to re-arm, wow. FAE's, wow. Thanks to my USAF warriors all, you know how sweet the sound that gun on the "Hog" is on the ground. Aim High, thanks fellow warfighters, God Bless

    Most likely was called in by a FAC running a M.U.L.E. (or whatever today's equivalent is). That's why the video is so precise, and the strikes are sometimes off frame. Dead terrorist = Good terrorist. Semper Fi!

  42. Durango56

    Erichs: I wonder the same thing. The A-10's I remember never stood still! This had to have been an Apache or Cobra.

  43. timshin
    timshin Feb 27, 2014

    So why the hell are they eliminating A-10s? Their rationale that we no longer need tank killers is irrational.

    I wish they had known their deaths were coming. The few survivors from the first strike knew it though. Eat depleted uranium scum......

    SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT - OBAMA ELECTED TO REDUCE OUR MILITARY BUDGET. WE'RE FACING CONFLICT WITH ISIS. WE'RE FACING POTENTIAL CONFLICT WITH RUSSIA AS WELL AS WITH A GROWING CHINA MILITARY - OUR MILITARY HAS BEEN REDUCED TO LESS THAN IT WAS WHEN JIMMY CARTER WAS PRESIDENT. AND OBAMA JUST ELIMINATED THE A-10! THE A-10 IS THE ONLY CLOSE SUPPORT AIRCRAFT IN THE U.S. ARSENAL THAT CAN DO WHAT IT UNIQUELY DOES. THANKS OBAMA. THANKS CONGRESS.
